Overview

Since 2011 Nashville Paddle Co. Has been the source for stand-up paddleboarding (SUP) in Music City. We offer short-term and long-term rentals, recreational how-to classes, intermediate technique instruction, endurance race training, SUP Fitness workout sessions, moonlight paddles, team building events, bachelorette parties, fun group outings and SUP yoga, all by advance reservation. Our paddleboard yoga and how-to classes are taught by certified instructors. We donate a portion of our proceeds to local watershed organizations. We are the only lakeside paddleboard business in Nashville, thanks to a public/private partnership with Metro Parks. We are authorized Nashville dealers for YOLO, and Hala Gear paddleboards. We recommend making reservations in advance, as weekends do tend to sell out in summer. Come see Music City on SUP with us!

I've been in Florida and California and the currents can be rough to paddle against. I was attracted to thus experience since it's on a lake, which means lots of freedom and minimal to no current. Loved watching my young boys play fearlessly. They put...More

I attended the intro class with my husband. We had a great time and returned a few days later with our 8 yo and 13 yo daughters. They loved it and we will definitely be back!

I took a "workout" class on the paddle boards led by Kate Moore at GetFit 615 and it was fantastic. The staff was really helpful and everyone had a great time! I'll definitely be back.

Very friendly instructor and I also loved that they had a photographer on site. It states that it is for beginner paddleboard and yoga students but I recommend on brushing up on Yoga beforehand and taking a separate paddleboard class.

Thoroughly enjoyed the intro to kayaking. It was very informative. It was a very easy paddle but learned about the different ways to use the paddle and also about different types of kayaks. Great day!
